In brief: Doctor can evaluate

Hand foot mouth disease (hfm) is usually from viruses such as coxsackie virus.
Children are the usual patients who get hfm disease, but their parents can also get infected. Parents should see their doctors to verify their illnesses, as other infections (such as strep throat) can cause sore throat and rashes. Coxsackie hfm infections in the U.S. Usually go away on their own without complications.

Hand-foot-mouth disease (HFM) is a clinical diagnosis that doctors make. HFM is caused by a virus called Coxsackie. The coxsackie virus is contagious and adults can develop symptoms of a sore throat and fever. If your symptoms persist and do not improve, you contact your physician to rule out other causes of sore throat.
Dr. Michael Blum
Sometimes the rash will appear in stages. The mouth may be affected, but not the hands or soles of the feet. Most experience physicians will know the illness and also what is going around the community. Important to reassure parents this is not a serious illness in their child.

In brief: Not bad

Adults can contract hand-foot-mouth disease following exposure from an infected person.
They don't always get the classic rash on their hands, feet, and in the throat as a child usually doses when they get infected. Your sore throat can be from hfm infection. If so, it will get better by itself without any benefit from antibiotics.

In brief: Could be...

Yes, parents and other adults could catch hand foot and mouth, which is actually a virus, usually caused by coxsackie virus.
Most of us have had the infection as a child (just another staple infection for kids) and mostly wont get sick after elementary school age. But, we still could get sick from the virus, its just unusual. It goes away quickly and usually completely benign.
